Answer:

The slope is #3# and the #y"-intercept is "2#

Explanation:

The slope is the number that multiplies #x# in the function: #y=mx+n#, #m# is the slope. In this case, the slope is #3#.

The y-intercept is the point in the graph where the line crosses the y axis. This cross happens when #x=0#. In this case, #y=3⋅0+2=2#. So, the y-intercept is #2#
